Hotel & Travel
"Kansas City, the original Gateway to the West, is known for its warm, welcoming hospitality. The new Loews Kansas City Hotel embodies that feeling from the minute you walk through the front doors. It starts with one of the most convenient locations in town—directly connected to the Kansas City Convention Center and within walking distance to the city’s most exciting dining and entertainment in the Kansas City Power & Light District. There’s a swirl of fresh energy in downtown KC and Loews Kansas City Hotel puts you in the center of it all.
You’ll feel it in our lobby bar, the perfect gathering place whether you’re heading out for dinner or wrapping a day of business. Floor-to-ceiling windows provide beautiful views of the city and the stylish space is designed for groups of all sizes to meet and mingle. You can eat like a local in our three-meal restaurant or grab a bite to go from our lobby coffee shop and when it’s time to unwind, enjoy a treatment at our spa or take a dip in our indoor saltwater lap pool. Our business center, fitness center, and a long list of services are at the ready to take care of whatever you may need during your stay.
Locals, visitors, business travelers, families, and pets—we can’t wait to welcome you all to Loews Kansas City Hotel."
